Change to Church services dates from March onwards

The pattern of church services at St. Bartholomew’s has recently fallen on the first and third Sunday’s of each month.

Following a review of services we have agreed to move them back to the second and fourth Sundays from March 2017 onwards.

There will be a Praise for All Ages service at 11.00am on the second Sunday and a Family Communion service at 9.30am on the fourth Sunday each month.

Where there are five Sunday’s in a month, a Communion service will be held at one of the churches in the Marshlands Benefice on a cyclical basis. The next fifth Sunday service at St. Bartholomew’s Church will be on the 30th April at 11.00am.

The services for March in the Marshlands will be:

5th Praise for All Ages – Whitgift 11.00am
12th Family Communion – Adlingfleet – 9.30am

12th Praise for All Ages – Eastoft 11.00am
19th Family Communion – Whitgift 9.30am
19th Morning Prayer – Adlingfleet 11.00am

26th Family Communion – Eastoft 9.30am
26th Praise for All Ages – Adlingfleet 11.00am

We will also be running a Lent course at two venues over five weeks. Further details will be sent out soon.
